(Asheville, NC) — Brian Boggs Chairmakers is thrilled to present the Sunniva outdoor swing, the most luxurious outdoor swing made in America. Handcrafted from beautiful, sustainably managed Honduran mahogany, as seen on luxury yachts, this opulent outdoor swing is inspired by the flowing curves of Asian timber-framed architecture. Winner of A’Design Award and Competition, the world’s most prestigious and influential design accolade, the Sunniva Outdoor Swing brings sophisticated comfort to outdoor spaces. When attached to its optional cantilever stand, the swing swings on quiet bushings for uninterrupted contemplation. Premium wood selection and precision micro-compression joinery contribute to the waterproofing of this functional masterpiece of garden architecture. The Sunniva outdoor swing is priced at $7,300 and $12,100 with the stand. The Sunniva collection also includes a rocking chair and an armchair.

For this design, Brian Boggs reinterpreted the traditional porch swing as a work of art that would be seen as inviting, attractive, and comfortable. He created a swing that recalls natural elements, such as the subtle flexibility and unhindered support of tree branches. Recognizing how straight lines and angles can make a porch swing look artificial and static, Boggs designed the Sunniva Outdoor Swing to suggest movement and organic comfort in its structure.

“While implying a sense of movement, the curvature of the Sunniva Outdoor Swing provides lumbar support and an unobstructed view with no strings or chains for support,” says Brian Boggs. “The cantilever bracket is designed to be flexible and quiet in operation and easy to move. The swing and bracket arch adds bounce for phenomenal comfort, strength and beauty. The joinery is fully housed in double tenons that prevent moisture from penetrating and compromising the integrity of the construction.

The sustainable Honduran mahogany wood used to craft the Sunniva collection comes from a trio of sawyer cooperatives who sustainably manage the rainforest near their small community of Copen. Buying wood is critical to the success of Greenwood, a nonprofit organization Boggs helped found in 1993, which works with remote forest communities to help them manage their forests and create valuable wood products. .

“The Sunniva Outdoor Chair is a modern take on an American tradition,” said Brian Boggs Chairmakers co-founder Melanie Boggs. “This is a sophisticated piece of comfort for a cherished porch that blends classic techniques with an all-encompassing sense of design and awareness.”
